New York Giants Hats , Eagles, Washington As the first quarter of the season wraps up this weekend, the NFC East remains a tightly-packed division. The Philadelphia Eagles and Washington are both 2-1, while the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys are 1-2. There’s no clear class of the division, which means even the smallest things can have a great impact on how the season plays out. So, here’s what’s happening this week with the Giants’ most intimate rivals.Philadelphia EaglesThe Eagles have been awaiting official word on the knee injury suffered by safety Rodney McLeod in Sunday’s win over the Indianapolis Colts. Bleeding Green Nation’s Brandon Lee Gowton reported late on Wednesday that there was no update pending further testing. On Thursday, Gowton reports that it appears McLeod’s injury is a torn MCL, which will likely end his season. In other Eagles injury news, receiver Alshon Jeffery was cleared for contact this week, though it does not guarantee that he plays on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. Running backs Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles were still both sidelined.WashingtonHogs Haven is focusing on Washington’s offense this week. Jamual Forrest provides an offensive progress report through the team’s first three games, while Kennedy Paynter breaks down how that side of the ball performed in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers.Mark Tyler also drills down Washington’s Week 3 performance, identifying the studs and duds of the game. Tight end Jordan Reed and his improved blocking stood out in a good way, while receiver Josh Doctson and his zero catches was among the players who struggled.Dallas CowboysThere are a number of problems in Dallas this season New York Giants Hoodie , and one is that the offense cannot consistently move the ball down the field and into the end zone. Blogging the Boys’ RJ Ochoa has found a disturbing trend that further illustrates how ineffective the offense has been this year: The Cowboys haven’t scored a second- or third-quarter touchdown all season.Michael Sisemore takes things a step further and argues that the problem isn’t just Dak Prescott, or any one thing that’s hurting the Cowboys, but rather the entire offense. From the line’s inability to protect, to no clear plan at wide receiver, the quarterback and thus the team are being set up for failure. Meanwhile, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett’s solution at wide receiver is to use a committee approach and to make no changes to the coaching staff at this time.Giants vs. Patriots: 7 things we learned What did we learn from the New York Giants’ 17-12 loss to the New England Patriots on Thursday night? Let’s take a look.Donte Deayon is making the rosterWhen you make two excellent interceptions on a team with a coach like Pat Shurmur who values balls skills, like Deayon did Thursday, you pretty much guarantee yourself a spot on the roster. Deayon should rest easy this weekend when roster cuts are made.Shurmur admitted after the game that Deayon “helped himself” with the performance.Pat Shurmur and Bill Belichick like to torture usBoth head coaches actually challenged calls in this meaningless, slow-moving, final preseason game. Belichick actually challenged an incomplete pass with 9:04 left in the fourth quarter. C’mon, Bill! What were you thinking?The helmet rule is still a messThe new “lowering the head to initiate contact” rule wasn’t a major issue in the Giants first three preseason games. It was Thursday, as the Giants were called for three penalties. I’m honestly not sure what the defenders on two of them, Mark Herzlich and Chris Lewis-Harris Youth Customized New York Giants Jerseys , could have done differently.“When we went through this helmet thing it was said ‘these are the certain plays that we want out of our game’ and those are pretty obvious,” Shurmur said. “Some of the plays we’re getting flags ... those aren’t part of the game I don’t know if we have a game.”B.W. Webb and Curtis Riley are startersWebb, the slot corner, and Riley, a free safety, were held out of Thursday’s game. That’s a sure indication they have won the jobs they were in competition for.James Bettcher doesn’t like breakdownsWhen New England quarterback Danny Etling went 86 yards for a touchdown on a read option, Bettcher went ballistic on the sideline. Never mind that there were four minutes left in a meaningless game and most of the Giants defenders on the field won’t be on the 53-man roster. The defensive coordinator didn’t like what he saw, and everybody knew it.Kalif Raymond couldn’t catch a breakThe wide receiver/return man had a 24-yard punt return wiped out by a penalty on Calvin Munson. He caught only one pass in seven targets, but was open on a couple of deep balls where he and Kyle Lauletta couldn’t connect. With any luck, Raymond’s stat line could have been an impressive one.Fourth preseason games are torturousEspecially when there are a combined 15 penalties called. Plus, the two challenges. However long this game took, it took too long.
